Shimano Nexus gear changes
This type of gear system is designed to let you change gears when stationary, without pedalling. It makes it easier to get your bike going again, particularly when you're carrying a lot of stuff.
The system is also shock-resistant because it's completely integrated into the rear wheel's hub and therefore needs very little maintenance.
There's a grip shifter to control it.
WARNING: the system needs you to stop pedalling for 1 second to change gears.

Battery-free lighting with Shimano hub dynamo.
With the AXA front and back automatic hub dynamo lights (they turn on and adjust their brightness to suit the light levels), there's no more messing around charging batteries before setting off, and no more of the noise you'd get from a "bottle" dynamo. In addition, the rear light becomes brighter when you brake to indicate that you are slowing down, and the lights stay on for a few minutes after you've stopped so that you remain visible.

CHOOSING YOUR SHOE SIZE
Size S/M is designed for riders 1.55 m to 1.75 m tall. Size L/XL is designed for riders 1.75 m to 1.95 m tall. If you are between the two sizes, choose the larger size for a more comfortable ride.

Care / transport tips
To prevent punctures and to get the most out of your bike, check the tyre pressure every fortnight when you're using the bike daily, or before each ride if you only use it occasionally. Degrease and lubricate the chain as soon as dirt begins to accumulate. Wash with water. Do not use a pressure washer.
Transporting the step-through frame bike on a boot bike rack may require an adapter bar.
Not suitable for off-road use. As this Dutch bike has very wide handlebars, take care when riding along narrow passages indoors or outdoors.
